Library Textbook Program

The librarians at COM have a solution to help with some of the more expensive textbooks. By partnering with faculty, staff, administrators, and your ASCOM representatives, the Library is now able to offer a lending copy of the proper textbook at no cost to students who enroll in the courses listed below. 

Here's how it works. Simply enroll in one of these sections and a librarian will visit your class on the first day of instruction to provide you with an authorization form and go over program details. All you have to do is take the signed form to the Kentfield Library Circulation Desk to check out your copy of the textbook. Terms and conditions apply, so check with the library staff if you have any questions or concerns. You may reach our friendly librarians by email at or by telephone at 415.485.9475. The Spring 2019 Library Textbook Program will provide our students with nearly 1,011 textbooks across 29 sections of 13 courses. Participating courses for spring 2019 include:
